Cliff, you wally !!!!

It's true, they (Jerry & co.) did play 'OMSN' as an encore at that Rotterdam show and the Grateful Dead Profiteering Machine did screw up by not including it on the (not so) 'Complete Recordings', (n.b. it was on the Samaratino SBD on the archive, before it got pulled) but they (Rhino & co.) didn't issue a corrected release. They probably didn't even know, at least until your call came in.

Me and 'me' mate took a FLAC/WAV version of the 'OMSN' and tagged it (seamlessly) onto the end of the show and produced a 'complete' version. 'Me' mate also did some magic with Photoshop to come up with the revised rear cover.

The 'give-away' are the side panels to the sleeve, for fitting in a jewel CD case instead of those god-awful (too tight) paper sleeves that come with the trunk. The box set remains in the fireproof vault for posterity.

No more wind-ups, honest, at least for the rest of 2012.

Well done indeed.

I just figured GDP/Rhino had hired DKG Consulting and were scouring the vault for enough "forgotten" tracks to release a 10 track $29.95 E72 Completer Disc. ;)

Well done!! The give away is the parentheses for the writing credits. Looks like you borrowed the right one from Uncle John's Band for OMSN but did it as a cut and paste and not a copy.

While they call it complete, they do admit to having a few missing tracks, i think two from 4-7 and also a few from the Bremen studio session. I don't recall if they fessed up to not having this one. The Bremen tracks are available here, so i assume that the stuff that is here but didn't get in the box was not from the multitrack recordings and they either don't have the 2-track or didn't want to use them.

Thanks, 'Elb'.

Yes, we knew about the Bremen 'omissions', but we figured the Rotterdam show would be the best place to start 'cos it was just(!) a case of tagging one track onto the end and not having to re-jig the whole package (but we still failed!). Just wait until I tell 'me' mate (Dave) about that missing bracket - his life is going to be one extended misery.

Apart from moving closer to a 'Complete Recording' for our own listening pleasure, we also wanted to bring the missing encore to everyone else's attention - at least those who weren't in possession of the Samaratino SBD. We weren't really expecting someone to cross swords with Rhino (sorry Cliff, the beer is on me as and when your boat ever runs aground here in Thailand).

There's also the "Big Boss Man" at Wembley that runs out 1/2 way through. Being pedantic (which I am when it suits me), I guess Rhino can still try and hang onto their 'Complete Recordings' motto 'cos, if the tape ran out, then what came after wasn't recorded so, what they came up with was the complete recording ...... still with me ? No, neither am I.

Anyway, am looking forward to the next ('Complete Recordings') box set, if only to find out what's missing.

Cheers,

Ha ha, well spotted Mr Elbow!, looks like it was a cut, not a copy, this is a real blow, I thought I'd got it spot on!
a (corrected) replacement cover is now winging it's way to Thailand

oh and, Hello to all! :-)

Welcome Dave!

It is really impressive and based on a recent thread here, quite in line with what GDP has been doing with patching shows. It must have taken a while to put that together. I didn't investigate that closely, did you lift the whole One More Saturday Night from another "blue" show, lift it and change the color and just renumber or did you have to piece the words together?

Thank you for your welcome, and your interest!

If I remember right, yes I just took the OMSN from another 'light blue' show....took a while getting the spacing right, and had to piece the correct time for the track duration from other parts of the cover. just basic PS stuff
Oh yes, and a bit of re-sizing so the covers fitted the jewel cases..

It was a lot of fun though!

take care,
and cheers!

Not to hijack the thread but I'm always a year or more behind in my GD listening. No, really. I can't keep up with the pace of all the music I buy and I've barely even started on Europe '72.

Anyway, last weekend I was comparing the sound on Rockin' The Rhein to the Europe '72 release. While trying to extract a disc from one of inner sections, it suddenly became much easier, which was good until I realised the packaging had just ripped down the back. Now my spotless, mint set is no longer just because I tried to get out one of the discs. The packaging really is junk. I think I would have happily accepted a far simpler box/trunk if they'd put trays in the individual show packages.

I removed the discs exactly 1 time to rip them to a drive and they now sit in the trunk until all the drives that i put the shows on crash for fear of ripping the sleeves if i ever attempt to remove them again. Its not a huge deal for me because I only listen to CDs in my truck, but it is a shame that they didn't come up with packaging like they are using for the Dave's picks.
